I installed Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit on a Dell Inspiron 1545.
During the installation and setting up all sorts of things I **FOUND** a
setting for toggling the touchpad ON/OFF

I'd first confirm that the commandline command works:
   synclient TouchpadOff=1

Then you could try grepping your disk (start with /etc) for the string
"TouchpadOff", to find what script(s) use it. E.g.
    grep -r "TouchpadOff" /etc/

And/or google for how to set up application shortcuts in Cinnamon. (In
Xfce it is the "application shortcuts" tab in Keyboard settings.) E.g. I
set up Alt+Home to run `xbacklight -inc 10` and Alt+End to run
`xbacklight -dec 10`, so I had a keyboard way to control screen brightness.


Thank you.
I was just in the middle of writing a response, complaining as usual that I cannot find the things I am looking for ...
When I found it!!!
Merry Christmas!

It is under:
Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> System -> Hardware => "Toggle Touchpad state"

I reassigned the shortcut ... and it works just fine!
A Christmas present that makes me "outrageously happy" (to speak with Linus van Pelt).

I wish everybody else, they may find something that makes them equally happy!
